Steakhouse
Insignia Steak & Sushi is the creation of Anthony Scotto - Owner of Blackstone Steakhouse , Rare650 and One North Mediterranean Soul.
Like its predecessors, Insignia's inspired menu features the finest prime dry-aged steaks and the freshest Sushi & Seafood, including fresh whole fish, served up in a chic, elegant atmosphere that is also a feast for the eyes. Picture a historic North shore mansion with cedar shakes, quarried stone and a beautiful turret combined with the energy and vibe of a trendy Las Vegas restaurant. "That's Insignia" stated Mr. Scotto, "It's refreshingly unique."

Food was good but the service was ok. Drinks are a little pricey but it was my anniversary so I splurged.

Food was great but service not so good. The waiter was rushing the whole meal. I ordered a whiskey and when I didn't immediately respond I wanted it neat, he condescendingly said "do you want ice or by itself". We ordered extra food to go for our son and he never gave it to us while we thought it was already packed in the bag. At one point my wife asked him to repeat himself because he read the deserts so fast and he said "sorry I'm really busy tonight".

Restaurant was over-crowded (Valentine's Day Weekend. Can't fault them for that. However, the table we were placed at was apparently in the middle of a major high-way for the Serving Staff. My chair was constantly being budged, bumped and the table was jostled frequently (busy night!). I asked if it was possible to either rotate the table or perhaps shift it slightly to make some space. I was met with what I would describe as a quiet resentment. I was told it would be impossible to rotate the table (it would supposedly deny the servers access to other tables). The Server said he would make sure they did not use this particular pathway anymore. Unfortunately, this did not change the route of the staff. The entire evening was spent uncomfortably tensing up every time a member of the Staff whizzed by, knowing there was a 50/50 chance the table would be struck.

I want to make it clear that I don't blame the Serving Staff for doing what they can on a very busy weekend. My issue rests with the price-point of the restaurant and the perceived lack of concern for the customer. If I were in a busy or otherwise undesirable area at a local Diner (imagine being perhaps a little too close to the kitchen doors) they would gladly attempt to accommodate my party as best as they could. I would only expect the same level of courtesy from an establishment that commands the prices and quality of Insignia.

The Meal was excellent and the night was otherwise enjoyable.

Regards,

A wonderful experience, the food was excellent and the service as well.
We were able to take out time and truly enjoy dinning out.
We will highly recommend Insignia and purchase gift certificates for our friends to enjoy.

Nice place....head waiter was a bit annoying. He was next to us and was constantly.on top of the other waiters (not in a nice way). The waiters were all professional...i was very pleased with all the waiters who served us. Its pricey, but you do get a lot of food. The water lilly cocktail i had was so strong! Will definitely go back for drinks!

We ordered the steak medium rare and it came to the table blue. We sent it back and then it was cooked nicely. There were big pieces of fat on each steak we ordered. Other steakhouses we frequent (Peter Lugers and Benjamin’s) replace those inedible pieces so the steak is perfect.

I signed up for the Good Life and my $600 meal was not credited. Now I have to call to get the points. This is annoying.

Yes, I would recommend Insignia! The restaurant is beautiful, very romantic. When we sat down the first song we heard was our wedding song! all of the staff was excellent!, really, really good. I had the mac and cheese and Lobster, excellent. my husband had the mushroom appetizer, and the chicken dish for the main course. I had the smaller filet mignon, which for the price, was a little disappointing. the wine was excellent. The COOKIE! we shared for dessert was awesome. I would recommend this restaurant

interior looks like a huge catering hall with hundreds of tables filling up the rooms, all quite close to each other. Expected something more intimate. I had petite filet mignon ($49) and roasted mushrooms as a side. The filet was actually tough and stringy on the outside -inside was medium as ordered but tasteless. Mushrooms arrived slightly warm and were sent back. Husband had 2 large prawns ($69) which didn't arrive with much lobster meal at all-as said by waiter before ordering. Not worth the price. Insignia salad was respectable. Sorry, Insignia, but Ruth's Chris can't be beat-my filet there is consistently tender, tasty and worth the price (go for the Classic Menu!) Perhaps other selections here are good, but I will never know...Prices are just plain Ridiculous, too.

Fast and great service. Dishes lacked flavor and while food was cooked well we anticipated steak would melt in our mouths. Unfortunately medium rare was a bit dry. We will try it again, maybe a non valentines setting would be better.

Terrible service waited an hour to be seated after reservation time. Waited another 45 minutes for appetizers and another 45 minutes for entree. Terrible time and won’t be going back. Ruined a Valentine’s dinner for many. Heard about 12 tables complaint and seen people waiting for hours. Should charge McDonald prices not city prices for that type of service.

Pros: Delicious food, great specials, professional service

Cons: long wait (though it was Valentine's Day - was seated 45 minutes after reserved time), tables can be too close to the bar, pricey (though you do get what you pay for)

Overall, great place and will return

We had two amazing waiters, Steve and “Uncle Glen”. They were super patient and attentive. They made our Valentine’s Day very special for my mother, sister and I. The food was so great, especially the truffle Mac and cheese and the special boneless rib eye. We will definitely come back soon!

Went on Valentine’s Day. 8:30 reservation, wasn’t seated till 9:15, didn’t get served our meal till 11. Once our meal was served the food was good, but the wait was horrendous. Manager apologized and comped us our meal so I’m able to leave a decent review, though I would have much preferred a timely meal to a free one.

Too expensive and noisy

We were there for Valentine's and the place was super crowded. We had a reservation at 8 pm but had to wait in front of the door (there was not even a chair to seat and we were feeling the frozen air every time a new guest was entering) for 30 minutes before being seated. The wait did not stop there because we ended up eating at around 10 pm.
The food was good, the steak was decent. The wine was good too but french fries were stinky and cold.
The bill was high, very high in comparison to what we got. We paid $240 for a steak split in two, french fries and spinach and 2 glasses of wine. No appetizer, no dessert, no coffee or anything else. Come on... Gallagher's in NYC is a MUCH BETTER steak house than this at similar prices! I think I will never go back. There are better alternatives.

Insignia never disappoints. Went for my Valentines Birthday. Love the energetic feel of the restaurant and bar. Bar service was stellar. Had best booth in the restaurant for our party. Waitstaff was understandably busy and only one of the two waiters assigned to our table waited on us. We had a long wait between apps and main course - not a problem though since we were all having drinks and lively conversation. Half our dinner party had "warm" food probably waiting for other dishes to be prepared. Still not a big deal. To top it off, a flare on the celebration platter is a definite birthday treat! We will be back!
